   NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) -- An 11-year-old girl who was unaccounted for at the scene of a western Pennsylvania home fire has been found safe with a relative.

   Crews in Neshannock Township say the girl was not staying in the home overnight as they feared.

   A woman who lived there was able to get out of the home along with her 16-year-old son, who has autism. Crews had to rescue another child, a 6-year-old girl.

   The fire heavily damaged the home near New Castle, about 45 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

   The cause of the fire was not immediately clear, and a state police fire marshal has been called in to investigate.

   The ruins were still smoldering more than two hours after the fire was reported about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.
